International Cooperation and Development

Our work

The EU is an active player in the development field. We promote good governance, human and economic development, and tackle global issues, such as fighting poverty, hunger and preserving natural resources. Our development efforts are comprehensive, coherent, and effective. We coordinate our work with EU member countries, build international partnerships, involve all relevant stakeholders in our development efforts, and partner with developing countries to achieve their ambitions. Our development cooperation focuses on results, transparency, and mutual accountability.
